The steel cutting ceremony of Seven Seas Splendor, the second cruise ship which Fincantieri will build for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, a brand of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, has taken place at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona. The delivery is scheduled for early 2020, the shipbuilder said in a statement.
The ceremony was attended, among others, for the ship owner by Jason Montague, President and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Robin Lindsay, Executive Vice President of Vessel Operations of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings and, for Fincantieri, Giovanni Stecconi, Director of the Ancona shipyard.
With its 55,500 gross tons, Seven Seas Splendor will be 224 meters long and accommodate 754 passengers on board in 375 suites. The new ship, which will follow Seven Seas Explorer delivered by the shipyard in Sestri Ponente (Genoa) last year in June, will be built using the very latest in environmental protection technologies.
